While you gear up for another unreal ski or snowboard season in the Rockies, you might want to give your body a little tune-up, too. If you’re not sure where to begin, you’re in luck. WildHeart Canmore has officially announced the re-introduction of their popular SnowFlow classes every Monday at 5:30 p.m. with Michelle Brazier. The unique yoga classes are designed specifically to elevate your season on the slopes with a mindful, proactive approach. Michelle works to condition your overall body and help to prevent injury as you build leg strength, improve balance, and energize your core. It’s the perfect combination of stretching and strengthening for mountain-lovers of all levels.
With resorts opening up in a couple of weeks, now could not be a better time to get that body moving. This year’s long-term forecast is indicating a whole lot of snow. In order to make the most of your time on the hill, you need to take a holistic approach to your conditioning. It’s not a hobby, it’s not a sport, it’s a lifestyle, and putting time and care into your ski season, both on the hill and off, will make a world of difference.
Beyond the physical impact, the benefits of yoga and mindfulness for one’s mental state are truly remarkable. Whether you’ve got some hefty goals for the hill this year, you’re hoping for quicker muscle recovery after a big day, or you want to up your stamina and control, this carefully crafted class will help you work towards those goals.

If you’re still curious how a yoga class can impact your skiing or snowboarding, don’t you worry, we’ve got some more information for you. Pre-season and during-season conditioning are of the utmost importance when it comes to injury prevention and peak performance. There are countless articulate movements and muscles we activate when we’re on the hill that we may not use otherwise. Therefore, out bodies are vulnerable to strain, pain, or injury if we don’t place a little focus on those areas before and after we hit the slopes. With the season fast approaching, now is the time to place focus on the articulate areas of your body that will come into play when you step into your skis or strap on your board. SnowFlow will help you lengthen those thigh muscles, strengthen your core, increase your flexibility and balance, and relax your mind. Not a bad deal.
Yoga instructor Michelle Brazier is an expert skier, a SkiBig3 Ambassador and an ACMG Hiking Guide, so you know you’re in good hands being lead through a class by someone who spends a great deal of time on snow and in the mountains. This uplifting class will feed your mind and body so you can be the best version of your self in the studio, on the hill, and out there in the world. Beginning with pre-season classes and continuing into the winter, you’ll be in awe when you see what your body is capable of when you give it the TLC it deserves. Let’s not take those bodies or our beautiful Rocky Mountain surroundings for granted, SnowFlow will help you get the most of your season and make it the best winter ever. See you at WildHeart!
